Description


Water Street Rescue Mission A nutritious meal, a shower, and a warm, safe place to sleep; rescue work starts right here, meeting the immediate needs of men, women, and women with children in urgent situations. But we don't stop with food and shelter; Water Street Rescue Mission is much more than a shelter in that we seek to address heart issues. We challenge clients to question the choices, behaviors, and patterns in their lives that may have brought them to their current state of need. It is our goal to foster an atmosphere of trust, accountability, and responsibility. We desire to act in the best interest of the resident.

Organizational Statement of Faith


E. Doctrinal Statement 1.We believe in the Scripture of the Old and New Testament as verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings and that it is the supreme and final authority in faith and life. 2.We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, & Holy Spirit. 3.We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man. 4.We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and become sinners in thought, word, and deed. 5.We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in him are justified, by faith, on the ground of his shed blood. 6.We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in his ascension into heaven, and in his present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate. 7.We believe in ‚?that blessed hope, ‚? the imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 8.We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. 9.We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
